The Criminal Court of Appeal overturned the decision of the Court of First Instance on the measure of restraint of the opposition figure, PAP leader Gagik Tsarukyan, and sent it back for a new trial, Samvel Dilbandyan, one of Tsarukyan's lawyers, told RFE / RL.

According to him, the Appellate Court did not make a decision to detain Tsarukyan. He rejected their applications, and partially satisfied the application of the prosecutor's office. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. It should be reminded that the prosecutor's office demanded the arrest of Gagik Tsarukyan.

The leader of the Prosperous Armenia party is accused of organizing election bribes during the 2017 parliamentary elections.
